Lightweight and full of features, Exped Explorer 130 SA trekking poles are high-performance offerings for year-round hiking and backpacking. Four telescoping sections and DAC aluminum construction make Explorer 130 SA poles more lightweight and collapsible than most competitors' poles with shock absorption.
A push button mechanism easily engages the "non slip grooves" locking system, allowing for quick adjustments. Internal expanders provide a confident lock so sections aren't susceptible to slippage while in use. Housed within the shaft sections, the mechanisms are protected from dirt and debris. Together, the streamlined locking mechanisms and four individual pole sections allow Explorer 130 SA poles to collapse all the way down to 21.3" while offering a usable adjustability range of 41"-51".
Integrated internal shock absorbers expand under pressure to reduce strain on your wrists, elbows and shoulders. This feature really pays off on long descents or sustained rolling hikes.
Lightweight EVA foam grips provide contoured, comfortable handholds. These textured grips extend far down the upper pole sections, allowing you to adjust where you grasp the Explorer 130 SA poles while eliminating the need to shorten or extend the poles each time you encounter a steep slope. Padded, adjustable webbing straps help to reduce stress on your wrists.
Press-fit carbide Flex Tips work in tandem with low-profile trekking baskets to provide Explorer 130 SA poles with optimal backcountry traction. Adding versatility, swappable Snow Baskets and Clip Powder Baskets are included for use in snow and varied conditions.
